If you're like us then you have a job. Blogging, unfortunately, is not my real job, just a job I don't get paid for. My real job is what pays the bills and does not allow me the opportunity to head to Austin, TX for this years SXSW music festival. The SXSW festival is a music festival unlike no other. Over 1,800 bands and musicians from all around the world will fill Austin from Wednesday, March 18th to Saturday, March 21st. We already posted a preview of all of the bands from AZ who will be appearing at SXSW this year and later this week you can expect a preview of all of the bands-local or otherwise-who I would be most looking forward to seeing if I were in attendance this year.
If you are lucky enough to be in Austin on Thursday, March 19th be sure and check out The Official Unofficial Arizona SXSW Party. The event will feature some of AZ's top musical acts including Dear And The Headlights, Miniature Tigers, Kinch, What Laura Says, and others. For all of the event details be sure to check out iheartaz.net.
If you're like us and will be stuck here in Phoenix don't worry because all is not lost. This Friday at Modified Arts you can check out the Pre-SXSW Warm Up Party. The show will feature several of the artists making the trip to Austin this year. Should be an awesome show filled with some awesome music. We will definitely be seeing you there.
